Jane Alexander and James Cromwell will join the cast of “Grand Horizons” on Broadway.
Alexander, a Tony and Emmy Award winner and four time Oscar nominee for films including “Kramer vs. Kramer” and “All the President’s Men,” will play Nancy, who has been married to Cromwell’s Bill for 50 years. Cromwell is Academy Award winner for his role as Farmer Hoggett in “Babe,” with television and film roles including “The Laundromat,” “The Promise” and “Six Feet Under.”
They join previously announced cast members Priscilla Lopez, Maulik Pancholy, Ashley Park and Michael Urie. Thomas Sadoski, who was previously announced as a Broadway cast member, has left the production “due to scheduling conflicts,” according to a spokesperson for the production.
Sadoski’s replacement will be announced shortly.
Alexander and Cromwell both have many stage credits, with Alexander performing in more than 100 plays and winning a Tony Award for her performance in “The Great White Hope.” Cromwell previously appeared in “Hamlet” and “Othello” on Broadway, with numerous stage appearances across the country, including the CTG/Los Angeles production of “Waiting for Godot.”
Directed by Leigh Silverman and written by Bess Wohl, “Grand Horizons” is scheduled to begin previews at the Hayes Theater on Dec. 23, with an opening night on Jan. 23, 2020.
